How to Find an Infertility Doctor or Infertility Clinic
Ob/Gyn's can treat infertility, but in my opinion, if you have been trying for a year (under 35), six months (35-40), or three to four months (over 40), I would recommend at least getting a second opinion from a board certified reproductive endocrinologist. The best source for finding one is at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) website, find a doctor page.
Ask your Ob/Gyn and primary care doctor for recommendations for a reproductive endocrinologist. Ask family and friends. You'll be surprised how many people have been down this road before you. If that feels too public for you right now, then go online and ask for recommendations. We list some great online support groups.
Networks for fertility clinics primarily provide business benefits to the clinics, but may also provide some benefits to patients, especially if you need financial options such as shared risk and payment plans. To find doctors who belong to these networks, go to their websites.
Fertility Success Rates is a great website created to help prospective patients find and compare IVF success rates, understand the data, and make a more informed treatment decision.
Start your search for an infertility doctor or clinic by checking out our Infertility Service Provider page. We have numerous sponsors that specialize in infertility. Consider supporting those that support us. Creating a Family would not be possible without the support of our wonderful sponsors who are committed to helping us bring you quality educational resources.
The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) collects IVF success statistics from their members. Their data is one year more current than the data listed below on the CDC's website.
The CDC has a comprehensive listing of statistics for infertility clinics in the United States, including success rates. Use it to check out your potential clinic, but first listen to the Creating a Family show on Choosing a Clinic to put the statistics into perspective.
